Walking slowly beside the river’s flow
Enjoying the cool green grass beneath our toes
Looking at the sun beginning to fade
I can see her face downcast, feeling betrayed

Her expectant feelings flushing my face
Now my feet quickened to keep up her pace
Papers I hold will keep her boyfriend here
With my love for her hoping we steer clear
